It was nail-biting time at the end of last week as organizer Scott Workman was about to raise a white flag and cancel the annual Independence Day celebration. But a call from Michael Ziouras, owner of Apollo Burger, saved the day. Ziouras ponied up $25,000 to help Workman reach the $65,000 goal needed to stage the Independence Day celebration. “As of late last week, until I got that call from Apollo, I thought we’d have to cancel i...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

If it doesn’t get an infusion of cash by Friday, the show won’t go on, according to organizer Scott Workman. In an unofficial vote Tuesday, the Salt Lake City Council determined not to fund the show beyond the $15,000 it has already pledged. “That’s quite disappointing,” Workman said Wednesday of the council’s decision not to up its ante. Presently, Workman said he has commitments of about $40,000 to put on the July 4th celebrati...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Organizer Scott Workman said a major sponsor has pulled out and another one has had to cut back its donation, leaving the show “woefully short” of its target. This is not the first time the celebration looked to be on the brink of cancellation. The park is operated by the Sugar House Park Authority and is independent of Salt Lake City.
